    Order of Charity (Nishani Shefkat - Şefkat Nişanı)

    Below a first class star ... and another 1st Class Set ... This time the 1st Class Breast Star is with Paste Stones .... Below , probably a European Made 2nd Class order ... Original Ribbon but in a later - Not Original Case/box. Please be note that there is NO "Wreath and Star" or "only wreath" on the reverse of the order... Also you can see that the gold center ( where the Toughra Located ) is cambered ... Not flat as in the Ottoman made ones ....

    Order of Charity (Nishani Shefkat - Şefkat Nişanı)

    Hello Gordon , It is a second class Sevkat order . 3rd class ones do not have any stones on them , you can see the Original box on the pictures but NOT correct ribbon . That incorrect ribbon is coming from a Big Imtiyaz Medal , nothing related with a Sevkat ... Best wishes , Avsar Ibar
